A 62-year-old Redwood City man has been arrested for allegedly stealing $70,000 in jewelry from a Woodside home in the 200 block of Eleanor Drive where he was housesitting from Aug. 4 to Aug. 8, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
The man was arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail on Aug. 20 and later released on bail, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office website. He is scheduled to appear in court for arraignment on Sept. 25, Wagstaffe said.
Prosecutors have not decided on the charges, but the Sheriff's Office has recommended that he be charged with felony grant theft and misdemeanor theft from an elder, Wagstaffe said.
